Description _ tball 2005-04-06 23:59:12 UTC
J2SE projects can generate javadoc documentation for the project's source, but
the only way I have found to view this documentation is by selecting the
"preview generated javadoc" option in the project's build/documenting
properties.  It would be very useful to have an IDE action to display that
javadoc (perhaps on the project's context menu below "generate javadoc for
project", without having to regenerate it each time.  My guess is that if
developers started using their own javadoc output more instead of just reading
javadoc comment source, their javadoc would be improved.
